Well, my 8 yr old daughter saved for a year and I helped her buy this bike! She is psyched! I dont even have a bike...she just decided she had to have one! She has ridden it every day and I'm going to have to go buy some more gas asap!!! But only after she's got all her studying and homework and chores out of the way! Big sister thinks its cool too, she's almost 11 and is starting saving now... So is Dad! I have never been around girls/women that like to ride! I am going to have to try and get the wife interested so we can make it a family event!!
